As we all know there are no live gigs taking place in the immediate future. However, any links to jazz streaming that are deemed suitable - i.e. with a professional approach - will be considered for posting.

The Quartet Grew Smaller + Improv Jam @ Jazz Café









Matt Robinson (clarinets); Seth Bennett (bass); Phil Marks (drums) + Karen Rann (soprano sax); Paul Taylor (piano).
(Review/photos by Ken Drew/Heading by Lance!)
Disappointingly, Stephen Grew had to call off his visit at the last minute, leaving the trio to play to the quite reasonably sized audience at the Jazz Café (downstairs).  Treated to 2 sets with good solos all round from Matt, Seth and Mark, underpinned throughout by  constantly changing drums/brushwork/effects from a very energetic Phil on drums.    The 2 sets were followed by the usual (but shortened) improv night where Karen Rann (soprano sax) and Paul Taylor (piano) stepped up to make a quintet, and followed on very nicely from where the trio had left off.   A good night, leaving us with the expectation of a re-visit with Stephen!
Ken.
